Biography

Professor Nielsch received his Ph.D. degree from the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics in 2002. After completion of the Ph.D. program, he worked as a Postdoctoral Associate at the MIT, Department of Materials Science and Engineering for a short period. From 2003 to 2007, he was a Project Leader of the BMBF Nanotechnology Research Group: “Multifunctional Nanowires and Nanotubes” at the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics, Halle, Germany. From 2007 to 2015, he was a W2-­-Professorship of Experimental Physics at the Institute of Applied Physics, University of Hamburg. Currently, he is Director of the Institute of Metallic Materials and W3-­-Professor of Metallic Materials and Metal Physics at Technische Universität Dresden.

In 2012, he was an Editor in Chief of the IOP journal “Semiconductor Science and Technology”. In 2011, he was acknowledged as one of the world’s top 100 materials’ scientists of the last decade (2000-­-2010) by Thomson Reuters/Web of Science. In 2006, he received a research Prize for Basic Research of the State Saxony-­-Anhalt.
